Laylo continues to lead Asian Zone chess c'ships

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello everybody,

Grandmaster Darwin Laylo beat fellow GM Cao Sang of Vietnam to remain in lead at the 2011 Asian Zone 3.3 chess championships being held at the Tagaytay International Convention Center in Tagaytay City. This was his fourth straight win helping him keep sole lead. Laylo is well on track to earning an entry into the World Cup with his current performance. The top two get a ticket to the World Cup from this zonal chess event.

The win helped Laylo move to a one-point lead over GMs Mark Paragua and Eugene Torre, and International Master Richard Bitoon; top seed GM Zhang Zhong and Wei Ming Goh of Singapore; GM Susanto Megaranto of Indonesia and Vietnamese GMs Nguyen Anh Dung and FM Nguyen Duc Hoa. See for results and standings for the Open and Women's.
